Placed on only bumper start in Ireland, he was a new recruit for Kim Bailey over the summer and after a promising debut over hurdles to finish second at Huntingdon, the half brother to Charbel made light work of this C&D with a seven length victory in his third start over hurdles. The form has worked out well from that and despite Captain Morgs being the obvious threat, his C&D experience should prove vital
Well well well, what can we say about this horse. Two wins from three starts over hurdles prior to March of this year, he headed to Cheltenham for the Supreme and despite drifting like a barge, he showed a great turn of foot up the hill to just get up from Abacadabras.
He’s a big horse and if that is anything to go off then he should turn out to be an even better chaser for top connections. He’ll be hard to beat here
Two wins from five runs when hurdling last season, she was 15th of 22 in the Mares Hurdle at Cheltenham. Returned to action with a 14 length victory over Dolcita (finished second in the Mares Hurdle) at Hereford at the start of this month. Likely to build on that now up in trip, she should be bang in the mix
Faultless over fences so far this season with two convincing victories coming at Bangor and Southwell. Didn’t look great when returning to hurdling over three miles at Cheltenham last month but now back down in trip and back chasing, this is the perfect opportunity for him to land the hat-trick over the larger obstacles
Board Of Trade
Only four runs in 18 months, he bounced back from another long lay off with a six length fifth off this mark at Lingfield last time out. The rust is now off and he can’t be discounted here in a more than winnable race
Second in Listed company in September, he returned to winning ways at Plumpton next time out bolting up by over five lengths and always pulling away. Seemingly more than capable of making it back to back wins here off the same mark with a handy conditional doing the steering
